Is there a way to test that Antivirus app with ClamAV is working properly?

I followed the ClamAV and Antivirus installation instructions as per these Admin Manual instructions.

I am running NC 20.0.8 on an Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS in VirtualBox.

I ran apt-get install clamav clamav-daemon, and later installed the Antivirus for files app.

Is there a way to test that the app is running properly?

Thanks for any help.

Hi, @DonDowner yes, there is a way to test this.
Try to upload one of those files to your Nextcloud:
If the upload succeeds is your Nextcloud and the Antivirus app most likely not correctly configured.

Thanks! That worked as intended. The app prevented the upload, hence it’s working properly.
